SD-3.13 Beam Deflection Apparatus

 

SD-3.13 Beam Deflection Apparatus

The Beam Deflection Apparatus has been designed to enable students to carry out experiments on simply supported and cantilever beams in order to investigate the relationship between the deflections and the applied loads and the effect of variations in length and cross sectional dimensions on the beam deflection.

Description

The Beam Deflection Apparatus has been designed to enable students to carry out experiments on simply supported and cantilever beams in order to investigate the relationship between the deflections and the applied loads and the effect of variations in length and cross sectional dimensions on the beam deflection.

The Apparatus consists of a rigid main support beam on which the hardened Knife Edge and Cantilever supports for the test beams can be easily positioned. Hardened steel knife edge load hangers and the dial gauge support, which slides freely on the main support beam, can be readily moved to the selected point where the deflection is to be measured. A suitably marked scale is secured to the main support beam so that the test beam supports, the load hangers and the dial gauge may be quickly and accurately located.

The standard equipment includes three test beams of the same material having suitable cross sectional dimensions:

  1. 25mm x 3mm x 1.04m long mild steel
  2. 25mm x 6mm x 1.04m long mild steel
  3. 13mm x 6mm x 1.04m long mild steel
